Imagine. Penny Arcade, the performer at the center of the Off-Broadway hit Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!, has developed a Bad Reputation. Her new show, which began a three week (extended to four) engagement at P.S. 122 March 4, ends its run March 28.
In Bad Reputation, Arcade takes a look at the lives of so-called "bad girls," including herself and other notable scarlet women of international renown. Arcade muses on the "bad girl" stereotype and society's obsession with it. Though the piece is technically a solo show, a press statement noted Arcade would be "backed up by a scantily clad chorus of gyrating gay boys and erotically enchanting bad girls."
Arcade -- nee Susana Ventura -- made her name in Bitch! Dyke!. Since then she has performed all over North America and Europe.
